Place of the Year nominee spotlight: Puerto Rico [quiz]

In September 2017, two powerful hurricanes devastated Puerto Rico. Two months later, 50% of the island is still without power, and residents report feeling forgotten by recovery efforts. From the controversy of hiring a small Montana-based electrical company, Whitefish, to restore power to the island; to the light shone on the outdated Jones Act, the humanitarian crisis following the hurricanes catapulted Puerto Rico to the world stage.

How much do you know about this commonwealth? Referencing Puerto Rico: What Everyone Needs to Know®, we’ve put together a quiz to test your knowledge. Take the quiz below and then vote to let us know where the Place of the Year should be for 2017.
